Hollywood actor Channing Tatum has vowed to slow down his movie career so he can prioritise his young daughter.

The Step Up star became a first time father early last year (13) when his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum gave birth to a girl named Everly.

Tatum's wife fell pregnant while he was busy filming four back-to-back movie roles, and he has now decided to cut down the amount of jobs he accepts so he can spend more time at home.

He tells People.com, "I want to slow down and don't want to miss my child's first 10 years of her life. So it's going to be nice to spend more time with the family."
